Do you believe in equality?

I asked Life.

Of course, yes! Life said.

You are lying! Said I.

For, if you truly did,

We would not have been so different.


 

Do you care for equality?

I asked the World.

Without a doubt! Was the reply.

You are lying! Said I.

For, if you truly did,

Our differences would not have been so stark.


 

Do you stand for equality?

It was Humanity’s turn.

I am all for it. Came the response.

You are lying! Said I.

For, if you truly did,

We would not be killing our own all the time.


 

Do you value equality?

God come next.

Why not! I love you all.

Stop lying! Said I.

For, if you truly did,

Bone cancer in infants would have just been a myth.


 

I do. Boomed loud and clear.

I turned to face the voice.

It was Death who had answered without being asked.

Do you? I had to make sure.

Good or bad; rich or poor; young or old;

When your time comes, I reach out.
